Located east of Florida's Turnpike, Boggy Creek
lies roughly west of the Orlando
International Airport, a 10-minute drive that puts the airport conveniently close but far enough away for some peace and quiet. In fact, what the area lacks in shopping malls, it more than makes up for with a pastoral setting and open spaces, giving kids plenty of room to play outside.
More often than not, locals congregate on the west of the Ronald Reagan Turnpike at Tropical Restaurant, just a few minutes from their homes. This hidden treasure serves a range of tropical foods from sweet pulled pork sandwiches to fried plantains. Another popular local destination, El Tenampa, features authentic Mexican cuisine. A live mariachi band and tres leches or three milk cake complete the cultural experience.
When residents need a bit of excitement, they hop on the Ronald Reagan Turnpike for a scenic 22-minute drive north to the downtown Orlando
area. Boggy Creek also lies 22 minutes east of Walt Disney World and southeast
of Universal Studios.
